“Management” refers to the processes of planning, direction, and control. One managerial function is that of planning, of establishing group or team policies, objectives and programs for the future. A second is organizing the assignment of specialized responsibilities to various departments and levels throughout the entire work team, thus facilitating cooperation and the effective utilization of human and other resources. A third function is usually described as control. Guides and indicators are created to facilitate a continuing check on operations. Through these controls, managers see that what is being done corresponds to objectives and assignments.
